We've selected a magical Chalet just 15 minutes from Ellicottville, NY hidden in a forest valley, next to a babbling brook with waterfalls.

 

During the retreat we will be sharing the principles of polarity and applying it to relationships based on our experience. We will weave this understanding in with a variety of healing tools and practices which help us to bond as a couple, including meditation and ceremony.

Sean James

Sean has been on a path of self-discovery and awakening for over 2 decades. He's drawn inspiration for his life through various spiritual practices and experiences including sweat lodge, yoga, sound therapy, entheogen ceremonies, nature immersion and polarity.

At the end of 2020, he was serendipitously introduced to the practice of polarity through an invitation to a social media group- Relationship Of Your Dreams. He was challenged by the material and applied the information to his partnership with Paige as the relationship was losing traction. Their partnership was revived and his leadership as a masculine pole expanded. Together they produced an audio version of a book based on the principles of polarity by Zak Roedde entitled, Irresistibly Feminine.

 

Among his significant influences are Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Ihalekala Hew Len, Abraham Hicks and most recently, A Course In Miracles. He's completed training in Ho'oponopono, Integrated Energy Therapy and Lomilomi. He has facilitated entheogen ceremonies with groups and individuals. He's an avid gardener and manages a permaculture based project in Amherst NY. Sean was born and raised in western New York as a lifelong fan of the Bills and Sabres. Let's go Buffalo!

Paige Allison
Paige has been serving the community with alternative based healing for six years through her business Paige Allison Healing Arts. She offers a variety of energy healing modalities, such as Reiki, Guided Meditations, Tapping & Intuitive Card Readings.

Her journey to polarity started in December 2020, while in a moment of full surrender she expressed vulnerably to Sean James, activating his devotion and catapulting their relationship into the exploration of feminine and masculine dynamics. Though the practice can be triggering and paradigm shifting, she ultimately has found extreme value in this way of relating and is excited to share the relationship medicine it has to offer.

When she's not doing healing work, Paige can be found busking in downtown Buffalo, painting rocks, and watching sunsets on Lake Eire or Lake Ontario.  Her lifelong dreams are to build a sustainable living healing arts community and to travel the country to see the National Parks while offering her services.
